Donate your unwanted shoes for a great cause

Date Published: February 7, 2014

Drop your unwanted shoes in the tall, wooden box near Cooper Library’s center stairs or in the Tillman Hall Media Center, and they’ll go far. In fact, they will be featured on the steps of the South Carolina State Capitol during Disability Advocacy Day on March 5 to keep lawmakers mindful of the thousands of people in South Carolina who have disabilities like Autism, Down syndrome, and traumatic brain injury.

After Disability Advocacy Day, your donations will be delivered to Soles4Souls, which sends shoes to people in need in the U.S. and elsewhere and employs adults with disabilities in its distribution warehouses.

Shoes will be collected through Tuesday, Feb. 25. The event is co-sponsored by the Clemson Libraries and the Clemson University chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children.
